3-Day Public or In-house Overview Course for Rapid Delivery of Enterprise Architecture, in 3-month Increments

Presented by Clive Finkelstein

Introduction

Enterprise Architecture is essential to achieve business integration and technology integration in today's complex business environment. This is recognized by organizations and governments world-wide. Unfortunately most Enterprise Architecture projects to-date have been multi-year, high-cost projects before any value is delivered.

This 3-day course provides an overview of the methods and technologies that enable priority business activities and processes, as identified by management, to be delivered into production rapidly, in 3-month increments. These methods identify common shared data, enterprise-wide. They enable reusable business processes to be implemented once, yet shared throughout the enterprise. This saves not only on development time and cost, but also on day-to-day operational costs of the resulting shared, common processes.

Clive Finkelstein

Clive Finkelstein is acknowledged worldwide as the "Father" of Information Engineering, He has over 50 years' experience in the Computer Industry. He has published many books and papers, and contributed Chapters and Forewords to books published by McGraw-Hill and Springer-Verlag. Clive has authored the following books:

  • “Information Engineering”, James Martin and Clive Finkelstein, Savant Institute, Carnforth: Lancs UK (1981). This was the book that started the Information Engineering Revolution in the 1980’s.
     

  • "An Introduction to Information Engineering", Clive Finkelstein, Addison-Wesley, Sydney: Australia (1989). This book covers the history and evolution of Information Engineering.
     

  • "Information Engineering: Strategic Systems Development", Clive Finkelstein, Addison-Wesley, Sydney: Australia (1992). This is the “how-to” book on using Information Engineering.
     

  • "Building Corporate Portals with XML", Clive Finkelstein and Peter Aiken, McGraw-Hill New York: NY (2000). This book covers methodologies and technologies for Enterprise Portals
    .

  • “Enterprise Architecture for Integration: Rapid Delivery Methods and Technologies”, First Edition, Clive Finkelstein, Artech House, Norwood, MA (March 2006). This first edition of the EA book is available in hardcover from the publisher Artech House or Amazon. The book brings together the methods and technologies for rapid delivery of Enterprise Architecture in 3-month increments. Read the Book Review.
     

  • “Enterprise Architecture for Integration: Rapid Delivery Methods and Technologies”, Second Edition, Clive Finkelstein, (June 2011). This 540 page eBook Second Edition of the EA book has a Foreword written by John Zachman.
     

  • “Enterprise Architecture for Integration: Rapid Delivery Methods and Technologies”, Third Edition, Clive Finkelstein, (Feb 2015). This 574 page eBook Third Edition has an updated Foreword written by John Zachman. It is available for purchase online for download in PDF, or as an iBook for the Apple iPad and as an eBook for the Amazon Kindle.

Clive Finkelstein is now retired. He was an internationally renowned consultant and instructor, and completed projects for Defense, Government and Commercial organizations throughout the world and in most industries. Many projects have involved the Zachman Framework for Enterprise Architecture, using the latest methods and technologies for rapid delivery of priority areas into implementation. These methods use Enterprise Engineering for rapid definition of Enterprise Architecture. His technology focus addresses Enterprise Integration technologies using XML, Enterprise Application Integration (EAI), Enterprise Portals, Web Services and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) for Business Process Management (BPM) using XML-based BPM languages.

He provided training and consulting in all aspects of the Zachman Framework for Enterprise Architecture, with rapid delivery of priority areas using Enterprise Engineering. His application of these methods in large and medium Government, Defense and Commercial enterprises resulted in Business Transformation Enablement, so that business and IT managers and their staffs can plan for and achieve rapid business change. Enterprise Architecture provides a Governance Analysis Framework that supports Sarbanes-Oxley and other Governance Audit requirements. It provides direct support and linkage to Balanced Scorecard for Strategy-Focused Organizations, to ensure that IT systems and databases support defined Scorecard Measures, Strategy Maps and Governance requirements.

Clive gained a Bachelor of Science degree in 1961 from the University of New South Wales in Sydney. He has been a Fellow of the Australian Computer Society since 1972 and was inducted into the Pearcey Hall of Fame of the ACS in Australia in 2008. He is the recipient of the iCMG 2015 Enterprise Architecture Hall of Fame Award from Sep 8, 2015. iCMG is a highly respected EA Education and Consulting organization, located in Indias

He published a free, quarterly technology newsletter via email: “The Enterprise Newsletter (TEN)”. Past issues of TEN are at: http://www.ies.aust.com/.  His books and papers are at http://www.ies.aust.com/cbfindex.htm. He can be contacted at clive.finkelstein@ies.aust.com. .
